openBench Labs Reports that Nexsan SASBeast Achieves Highly Manageable Multi-Fabric SAN Infrastructure in Microsoft Hyper-V Environments

New Lab Test Validates Nexsan SASBeast’s Dynamic Support of the Performance Characteristics that Distinguish the I/O Patterns of a VOE Host Server

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., January 20, 2011 — Nexsan®, a leading disk-based storage system provider, today announced that openBench Labs has validated the Nexsan SASBeast® storage system for superior performance and IT productivity gains when used in a Microsoft Hyper-V™ Virtual Operating Environment (VOE). The lab report identified that the Nexsan storage system provided a highly manageable multi-fabric SAN infrastructure capable of supporting the performance characteristics that distinguish the I/O patterns of a VOE host server.

“Nexsan’s ability to provide configuration insight, management simplification, and task automation through VDS integration are particularly important when implementing a Virtual Operating Environment (VOE) based on Microsoft Hyper-V,” said Jack Fegreus, managing director, openBench Labs. “By complementing high performance hardware with sophisticated management software and tight integration with hosts, Nexsan empowers IT to use any advanced software-stack-based features for provisioning VMs, commissioning and decommissioning VM applications, and moving VMs among hosts for on demand load balancing.”

Simplified SAN administration via a single-pane-of-glass interface

Utilization of Microsoft tools to automate the management of Nexsan resources

Maximized density and reliability with hierarchical storage

Maximized I/O performance

“Nexsan’s SASBeast is an impressive and efficient offering that deserves to be on the short list for organizations updating or building virtualized server environments," said Mark Peters, senior analyst with the Enterprise Strategy Group. "It has the improved management, performance and financial attributes that are invariably expected for such projects. Many organizations require storage that is simultaneously easy-to-use and yet also provides outstanding performance for the price; Nexsan is proven in delivering this combination, which can help IT users meet both their overall IT and business objectives.”

“As Hyper-V continues its rapid adoption, today’s IT organizations need a flexible and reliable storage solution that will enable full utilization of its VOE value,” said Gary Watson, CTO, Nexsan. “As validated by openBench Labs, Nexsan provides the performance, IT productivity gains and cost efficiency needed by today’s virtual infrastructures.”
